    ubuntu on hyperV networking not working

    Just trying to installl ubuntu onto hyperv. I know its not officialy supported by MS, but all the previous versions of ubuntu have just worked.

    This new version, for some reason, doesnt work. During setup, the networking is fine, it can download all the required updates etc as it installs. But once it reboots after finishing the install, it seems to get a DHCP address, but doesnt have any network activity?

    Bit strange. Think Ill just stick to gentoo, its a lot easier.

    I gave it legacy.

    But having just found this page Narendra Patel's Blog » Installing Ubuntu Server 11.04 64bit on Hyper-V it seems that hyperv drivers are part of the new ubuntu!

    Ill give that a go..

    Well that was a bit easy. Guess I should keep up to date and actually read the 'whats new' section of new releases of things..
